Default Shift kit

Does anyone here know if I was to buy a shift kit and put it on only a GT would it make a difference? I don't want to buy one if it'* not going to make a difference.

You will feel a difference. The shifts will be faster and firmer. The kit I have is a complete shift accumulator all rebuilt. $50 shipped plus a refundable $25 core charge. It'* simply the easiest kit to install. Drop the pan, drain fluid, remove 4 bolts, swap the accumulator and put the pan back on and refill the fluid.

It will make a difference you can feel. We have several members with shift kits on NA engines, and they all seem to like the results.

Your shifts will be firmer and more pronounced. You'll notice it, especially when the evil right foots learns about it....

I've got a shift kit in mine and I can notice quicker shifts when I'm getting on it.
